There are a total of five musical instrument families, in which lie all other instruments. They are as follows-
1. Keyboards These instruments are known to produce greater varieties of sound and have traces long back. Although keyboard instruments can produce sound covering the whole of an orchestra, composers have always taken a keen interest in composing cherished solos- like Mozart. Some of the most popular ones include Piano, Harmonium, Harpsichord, and more.
2. Strings String instruments have also been around for a long time now and have taken lots of forms over the years. As the name suggests, music is produced from the strings attached to the instrument, which can be played with a bow, struck simply with hammers, or picked by fingers. Also known as Chordophones, all these instruments have a hollow portion, making the sound more pleasing. Some famous instruments include Guitar, Violin, Harp, Sitar, and more in the list.
3. Brass Almost all musical families have been known since ancient times and brass instruments are one of them. Blowing from your mouth to create sound is the technique to create melodies. The ancient instrument came out from seashells and animal horns. Modern instruments include mostly a metal mouthpiece where musicians blow air and produce musical sounds by using various techniques like lip pressure, facial muscles, mutes, etc. Some well-noted instruments include French Horn, Trumpet, and many more.
